Benelli 254 Quattro

Prior to the new De Tomaso era, had plans to built a series of machines, to confront the Yamaha RD very popular in Europe and restricted in the Italian market.

The of these was the 125 2C dated on November and few months later Benelli the 250 2C. Itґs was not a full new machine but a big 125 2C using only new few components.

Its claim to fame lay in succes in the hillclimb championships and Formula 3 racing. The racing specialist REC made a special kit water version with much and 6 speeds gearbox, extracting 46 bhp at rpm. The lack of reliability due to the factory design and the best of the Yamaha TZ race models, the diffusion of this model of Italy or Spain.

This model ran from 1972 to 1982, and remained unaltered throughout its ten year span. This confirm the engine in original especs is reliable, but the electrics in 6 v. are the nightmare of the

In 1976 came what was the Benelli roadster multi, the This time al least, couldnґt be accused of copying, as the 254 was all own work. As if the 750 Sei was the first six cylinder in the market, the 254 was the first road-going … 250 four.

The international opinion about model was very positive, and it was in every conceivable way. it was small and very light only 117 kg. From its tank combined speedo/tacho console, warning lights, to the delicate cast alloy wheels, red plastic dummy tank panels and racing-type seat, the four was something completly The only black point was excessive price, double of a Yamaha RD 250.

No question, the Benelli was not faster and not as reliable as the in general.

Very few 254 were and there are still many for sale in the original crate.


Itґs not an easy job to these machines for a test, but in case both are mine. The 250 2C in restored condition and the 254 itґs in condition with only km. on the clock.

The 250 2C has a more classical with spocked wheels, brakes and separated fuel seat and side panels. The 254 smaller with cast and a lot of red plastic here and there a thin seat.

The only way to de two … itґs by kick and the 254 only with electric

The sound of the 2C itґs like all two strokes, very excyting, fast and into a cloud of smoke. The 254 itґs disappointing firing because the sound too loud as a 500 trought the original two No racing sound no smoke at

Bad beginning!!

On the road the 254 itґs a machine and feel as a little with mopped tyres and 117 dry kg. No engine under 4.000 rpm and the fun from 6.000 rpm and the smile your face from to 12.000 rpm. What a engine.

What a beautifull What a beautifull handling. but a … of brakes!

The riding position, the controls the wood-feel seat and the rear put things on the right place. only a toy to play, a miniature an Italian styling exercise, not a for riding.

Changing on the 250 2C itґs to a real classic motorcycle: frame, good handling, riding position, good good seat feel, brakes and good engine band. From tickover to rpm the actitude itґs for touring but if you throttle to 8.500 rpm the racing appears with that that only a twin two can made. This is not a beautifull toy but a motorcycle.

Itґs easy to understand why model has been unaltered its ten year life catalogue.
